Different carb?!

Recommended Posts

Hey I have heard that you can buy bigger carb and it help to really open up the bike especially on the low end. What carb is recommended and without doing to many mods?

You can Do it yourself with a 65 carb. the cap needs to be modified also. there is a long article on Thumper talk about doing it.

BUT you will also need to install a better exhaust system. the carb does not really help if you cant get the spent extra air and fuel out of the bike as fast as the larger carb lets it in. simple engine physics

I did the kx 65 carb swap without an exhaust, and it makes a huge difference. The bike will finally pull the front tire off the ground without the use of the clutch. It was a cheap mod well worth the efforts.
